McDonnell for Governor Press Release

RICHMOND- Just days after the general election gubernatorial matchup was set, a broad group of Democrats, Independents and Republicans announced their endorsements of Bob McDonnell for Governor, and the formation of “Virginians for McDonnell.” The group will be led by Judy Ford Wason, who headed “Virginians for Mark Warner” in 2001 and was a member of the group in 2008, and Wyatt Durrette, former candidate for Attorney General and Governor, who endorsed Tim Kaine for Governor in 2005.
